Sunday's Week 14 Colts-Bengals game at Paul Brown Stadium is expected to be played in snow and 10-11 MPH winds.
FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports Dennis Pitta (hip) "won't be a full go but will play some" Sunday against the Vikings.
The good news is Pitta is coming back -- he was activated from short-term I.R. on Saturday. The bad news is he won't be a TE1 option in the first round of fantasy playoffs. He certainly could be one in Weeks 15 or 16, however, as the Ravens have tight end-friendly matchups against Detroit and New England the rest of the way. At this point Pitta should be owned in most fantasy leagues.
Marcel Reece will be the Raiders feature back in Sunday's game against the Jets.
FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Rashad Jennings (concussion) is expected to be inactive Sunday against Jets.
Jennings was cleared to practice on a limited basis this week, but apparently never received formal clearance to play in a game and absorb contact. The Raiders will turn to Marcel Reece at tailback, per Glazer, and Taiwan Jones could also see action in the backfield after converting from cornerback. Darren McFadden (ankle) and Jeremy Stewart (knee/ankle) are both on the shelf.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Sunday Countdown that Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt is "squarely" on owner Bob McNair's radar in the Texans' head-coaching search.
Whisenhunt has NFL head-coaching experience -- one of McNair's most desired qualities -- and has also overseen a much-improved offense in San Diego this season, helping to rejuvenate the careers of players like Philip Rivers and Ryan Mathews, alongside OC Mike McCoy. Whisenhunt was very successful as a head coach in Arizona until GM Rod Graves couldn't find him a quarterback. Graves, and Whisenhunt, were eventually fired. The Texans don't have a quarterback, either.
The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts don't plan to shadow A.J. Green with Vontae Davis in Sunday's Colts-Bengals game.
The plan, according to beat writer Stephen Holder, is for Davis to stay on the right side. Green runs a lot of his routes against left corners, so it could be an opportunity for the Bengals to take advantage of some mismatches with Greg Toler (groin) still sidelined. Cassius Vaughn will play the majority of the snaps at left corner. Davis is Pro Football Focus' No. 7 corner this season. Green is locked in as a WR1 and is our No. 5 receiver for Week 14.
Updating a previous item, Brandon Marshall (quad) is listed as probable for Monday night's game against the Cowboys.
Marshall practiced in full on Saturday and is in no danger of missing huge game for the 6-6 Bears. Over the last five weeks, Marshall is averaging 6.4 catches for 90.0 yards with four touchdowns. He's an excellent bet to shred the Cowboys' No. 31 pass defense.
Sunday's Week 14 Vikings-Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium is expected to be played in snow with 7-8 MPH winds.
The forecast calls for light snow shortly before and after kickoff, but it's expected to fizzle out around halftime. It's not even a major concern. Temperatures are going to be in the mid 30s, per Weather.com. We'd consider that warm for this time of year. Don't overreact. The wind is not going to be an issue.
